Outlining current practices as well as investments made, Natural Grocers recently released its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report for fiscal year 2022. This comes as the grocer continuously works to improve its environmental sustainability and social equity.

Kemper Isely, Executive Co-President, Natural Grocers (Photo credit: Denver Post)"We chose to focus on our commitment to regenerative agriculture in this year's ESG report because we believe it is beneficial to the earth and an important practice with the potential to mitigate climate change. Regenerative agriculture is a reclamation of the best practices from the past, combined with current evidence-based research, to improve and renew the ecosystem and natural resources that are foundational to farming," said Kemper Isely, Executive Co-President.

The 2021 ESG report was largely focused on product standards, which is the cornerstone of Natural Grocers' sustainability principles. This demonstrates the company's commitment to offering high-quality natural and organic products at Always Affordable prices, a press release stated.
